Is There A Specific Amount Of Asbestos Exposure Needed To Cause Mesothelioma?

Is there a specific amount of asbestos exposure needed to cause mesothelioma? The answer is no. There is no magic number or amount that will lead to mesothelioma. Every person reacts differently to asbestos. Some individuals may be exposed for prolonged periods of time and never develop health problems, while others may have had a few months of exposure and develop mesothelioma. The key is to remember that any amount of asbestos exposure can possibly cause someone to develop mesothelioma.

If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos and has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, the skilled attorneys at The Gori Law Firm can help. We have been providing effective and quality mesothelioma representation to victims since the 1990s. Our firm is a nationwide leader in asbestos litigation with more than 20 years of experience, and to date has secured more than $3 billion in settlements and verdict awards for our clients.
